On October 19, 2010 one of three experimental sites at Chisholm Alberta was burned to test the effectiveness of the selected native Alberta less-flammable species (Baxter 2010) in a wildfire
situation. Plateau Rocky Mountain fescue, yarrow and white clover had been planted in a natural environment in 2008 at three sites in and around the hamlet of Chisholm, Alberta. Test burns were planned for spring and fall conditions to reflect the primary grass fire hazard. This paper will report on the fall burning season. Spring fire season testing is planned for 2011. Depending on the success of the selected species (sufficient establishment and response to fire), these mixtures could be seeded in and around values at risk, along linear corridors, or for community protection purposes; such as FireSmart™ projects.
